Last night, I couldn't take any more and wound one skein into a ball and cast on. This is the result: The beginning of a pair of Classy Slip-up socks from Betsy Lee McCarthy's Knit Socks! book. Isn't the color just scrumptious?
I took it with me to a doctor appointment today so I'd have something to do while waiting. Very satisfying, indeed, after having worked so long on shawls. I do have something else in the works, but it's still in the experimental stages, so you'll have to wait.
